The World's Longest L
Livermore has more than just ranches and wineries as its claims to fame. As bizarre as it may sound, one of Livermore’s most famous legacies is the world’s longest lasting light bulb. This four-watt light bulb has been running continuously in the Livermore-Pleasanton Fire Department station since 1901, save a few power failures and three moves to newer stations. Although it is now expectedly quite dim, it has its very own listing in the “Guinness Book of World Records.” The light bulb itself was hand blown and manufactured by the Shelby Electric Company and is made with a carbon filament.
